Coronavirus (COVID-19) Patient/Carer Notice

Welcome to Panch Day Surgery Centre

Panch Day Surgery Centre is specifically equipped for surgical procedures that require more specialised care than is offered in an outpatient clinic but does not require an overnight stay. This currently includes a number of ophthalmic procedures, but we are also happy to consider complementary specialties.

Designed with a modern, contemporary feel, Panch Day Surgery Centre has the only dedicated eye surgery theatre with the latest technology in the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne.

We are located in the Corporate One building within the Bell City Complex, giving us access to a wide range of facilities including 600 car park spaces, cafes and restaurants. Panch Day Surgery Centre has secured a special rate with the Mantra hotel in Bell City, should an overnight stay be required.

The Panch Day Surgery Centre team is dedicated not only to meet, but to exceed the expectations of our patients and their families. You will feel immediately at ease and welcome the moment you walk through our doors.

So whether you are having surgery with us, or are accompanying a friend or family member, we’ll be there to make sure that you are comfortable every step of the way.

COVID-19 Update

9 June 2021

Victoria’s COVIDSafe settings are changing

Metropolitan Melbourne will move from a circuit-breaker lockdown to eased restrictions at 11.59 pm on 10 June 2021.

As they have throughout the lockdown, Vision Eye Institute’s Victorian clinics and day surgeries will remain open – however, some restrictions may apply. If you have an upcoming appointment scheduled at one of our Victorian clinics or day surgeries and we need to reschedule your appointment, the clinic staff will contact you directly.

Guided by Vision Eye Institute’sIn Safe Hands program, our clinics and day surgeries have continued to observe strict social distancing and infection control measures (including mandatory masks for all patients, staff and visitors).

More information on the latest restrictions can be found on the Victorian Department of Health website:

In keeping with advice from The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO), we are encouraging all patients with existing eye conditions and/or new symptoms to seek attention from an eye care specialist. In particular, patients with conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration are urged to prioritise their eye care appointments, since missed or delayed treatments can lead to irreversible vision loss.

If you are concerned about leaving home, please be assured that protecting the health and wellbeing of our patients, carers, staff and doctors remains our top priority. All facilities will continue to observe strict infection control protocols and social distancing measures to ensure a safe environment for your medical care.

Please do not attend your appointment if you are unwell, have been asked to quarantine, or reside with someone who is unwell or has been asked to quarantine.

If you are attending an appointment, we ask that you:

  • Let us know prior to any scheduled appointment or surgery if you:
    • have returned from overseas travel in the last 14 days
    • have had contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
    • have worked or volunteered at a hotel quarantine site in the last 14 days
    • reside in (or have visited) a known high-risk area with a cluster of cases.
  • Adhere to the mask-wearing policy of the facility you are visiting.
  • Only attend your appointment or surgery with a maximum of one carer.
  • Do not attend earlier than your appointment time.

If attending an appointment, you will be asked to read the information on the external signage and sign a declaration. You will also need to complete a QR check-in on your device and confirm that you meet all the conditions prior to gaining entry. As a further safety precaution, a number of our larger clinics have implemented a concierge service to screen patients before admitting them into the clinic.

Alcohol-based hand rub is available on arrival and all visitors are asked to clean their hands thoroughly on arrival. Please ensure you cover any coughs or sneezes with a tissue (and dispose of the tissue appropriately). Each of our sites undertakes regular cleaning of all surfaces, with ample supplies of hand sanitiser for staff and visitors.

We appreciate your assistance in ensuring we are able to safely meet the needs of our patients.
